Workshop 6 - Common but not Tragic
Environmentlly conscious Design must move away from a marketing-driven pursuit of selling individual units towards "product-service-systems" based on communal use. This workshop combines the ideas of the sharing economy with concepts of sustainable design by addressing the principles of ownership, property and the reuse of resources.
This workshop is not about individual comfort but the betterment of the community. Thus, we will focus on design principles as researched and tested by Enzio Manzinim (design for social innovation) and Elinor Ostrom (governing the commons) to prototype greener, pro-social deisgns to be implemented in Schwäbisch Gmünd.
